Other PSASA Meetings

In addition to the Regular Monthly Chapter meetings we also have the following meetings in any given year.

Technical Workshops/Bootcamps

PSASA conducts Saturday morning or Evening workshop from time to time on relevant aspects of building
a successful speaking business. These sessions, conducted by subject expert professional
members, are aimed at emerging speakers, but are of value to speakers at all levels.
Duration: 3-4 hours.

Special Ad Hoc Meetings

Both the above events are sometimes scheduled to coincide with the visit of an international
speaking colleague from a sister association.

The Annual National Convention

Once a year our national convention hosts a selection of top quality professional speakers
and subject experts at a recognised conference venue. These conventions consist of keynote
presentations, educational workshops and “Meet the Pro” sessions. The networking
opportunities are a major draw-card, and pull together many major players in the speaking
industry including speaker bureaux, conference organisers and event planners.

The Annual General Meeting

This is a members only event. The PSASA Council reports back to its members on the activities of
the previous year, propose new directions for the coming year, and conduct elections of new office
bearers. This usually happens annually in April on the Sunday of the Annual Convention.

International Conventions and Summits

Our affiliated National speakers associations in the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain, Germany, Holland, Singapore and Malaysia conduct their own Conventions, usually on an annual basis. All GSF affiliated members are eligible to attend these conventions at member rates.
